If part of a hedge is growing poorly it is due to either poor dry soil or wet soil, particularly in winter. And there might be water coming from the bank.

If this is the case, you might be able to run a drain to take water away.

if it is at the top of the bank, and it’s not waterlogging, it’s poor soil. Feed each spring, now for this year, with tree and shrub fertilizer or 10-10-20, 30 gm per linear metre of hedge, and apply a good mulch of rotted manure or similar organic matter.
